Smart devices

What is a smart device?

A smart device is an electronic device that is connected to the Internet or other networks.

A smart device can collect, process, and transmit data. The overarching concept of smart devices (where devices are interconnected and can communicate with each other) is often referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). Thus, a smart device can also be called a connected device or an IoT device.

Smart devices include smartphones, smart TVs, smart speakers, smart thermostats, smart home security systems, smart appliances, wearable fitness trackers, and more.

Why do we have smart devices?

Smart devices are everywhere. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), smart devices are becoming increasingly more helpful – but not only that. They are seen almost everywhere in industries from smart manufacturing to healthcare, helping to automate processes, improving efficiency.

They can operate at the edge or on small endpoints, are able to process data on the device, and range from small sensors to wearables and transportation. Powered by embedded processors such as Codasip L11 and Codasip L31, they are capable of running certain workloads autonomously.
